NEWRY & Armagh MP Mickey Brady has said that the Southern Regional College has withdrawn their planning application to demolish the old Cattle & Pig Mart Wall along Patrick Street in Newry.

Welcoming the news the Sinn Féin MP stated, "Senior management have contacted me to confirm that they have withdrawn their application to amend the frontage of the East Campus building.

"They have also committed to consulting with the local community on any future plans to develop facilities including changes to the frontages of the Campuses at Patrick Street.

"I commend the SRC Management Team for their prompt response to the concerns that myself and many local residents raised."
